Unless the Melange Mining Corp alternate art depicts a scene of an Harvester on Arrakis, I'm gonna be disappointed!
That'd be sweet!
Just an FYI for those interested in what the word Melange means other than the spice from the Dune universe:
. Geology A metamorphic rock formation created from sediments and rocks scraped off the top of a downward-moving tectonic plate in a subduction zone.

For the world Championship in AGoT one of the guys got a Warhammer. Apparently it was a serious warhammer, weighed something like 20 lbs, full shaft and everything (I wasn't there, but so the talk after the tournament was). They shipped it to the guys home so he didn't have to try and get it through airport security… how funny would that conversation with TSA be?
I recall one year they gave away a replica of Ice as well (Eddard Stark's greatsword).
So if the game is popular they are willing to spend some money on, how would you say, quite substantial prizes.
It was Robert Baratheon's warhammer from Valyrian Steel (http://www.valyriansteel.com -- they specialize in Game of Thrones related weapon and armour replicas). That's also where last year's Ice replica came from. Both are worth $270, that's not too shabby prize support, at least by FFG's standards.
Developer-class Google Glass anyone?
That or a replica beanstalk (best corp) and console trophy (ipad-mount?) for best runner
International tourney; would it be worth going around-the-world for? Heck yeah :)
